I have been a practicing witch: doing ritual, performance and community organizing/activist/social work with people who live in poverty for over 25 years. I walk a spiritual path devoted to erotic and ecstatic communion with spirit in all of its faces and forms and am called to helping others to experience immanence through many roads including western queer tantric practice and shamanic journey work. I have facilitated workshops in leadership, personal growth, sacred sexuality and mask making for many years. First teaching Reclaiming classes in 2001, and then at Witchcamps starting in 2003, I am devoted to service and organizing work. Dedicated to Freya and initiated into Reclaiming, the Honey Bees Clan and the Bear clan as well as Queer Spirit – those roots and conversations inform my daily life.
